Fatal Infraction (MST #4)

Rated a 5-star ‘Best Book’ and Best Police Procedural of 2021 by Chanticleer Book Review.


In book #4, Mike, Jason, Rachel, and Michelle are just back from their adventures aboard the Collossus of the Ocean in Lethal Voyage. Mike was hoping to have a few weeks of peace after all the excitement. Unfortunately for him, controversial quarterback Jimmy Rydell’s body is found naked – on the Central Park carousel. Who killed him?  How did he get there two days after he disappeared? . . . And why was the body frozen?

Jimmy’s team (a New York NFL franchise that wears Green and White and practices in Florham Park, New Jersey) just wants to move on, after collecting on the $20 million insurance policy. Jimmy’s teammate – the one who threatened to kill him – swears he wasn’t there. Jimmy’s bodyguard says he had the night off.

Was Jimmy the victim of a racist attack? Or was he collateral damage in a mob-financed point-shaving scheme? The investigation may split the team apart. The controversy threatens to tear the city apart. Mike and Jason need to close the case quickly, without committing a Fatal Infraction.
